Forum: moviesandfilms Subject: Embed movies not playing

I have quite a few movies embedded on my website. Recently they have stopped playing, or work sporadically. The issue doesn't seem to be with my website. Has anyone else recently experienced this issue?
Is there a current issue with IA that might be causing this?
Any help would be appreciated.
Here is a link...

can you provide a couple of examples. i just chose two movies at random on your site, one with the old flowplayer and one with the new jwplayer. both started although the flowplayer one buffered a bit longer.

I just tried two. Aces and Eights and American Empire. Neither one of them loaded in Firefox. Sometimes if I try a different browser, they'll work, and sometimes not. As I said, it's sporadic. I'm not sure where else to look on my end, and I can't seem to get an email reply from IA.
Any suggestions?
Scott

both just started for me in MacOSX/Firefox with no issues and I am on a very slow network. of the two American Empire took the longest to start. I see that it was uploaded in 2004 which partly explain that symptom. since it is using an old 512Kb MPEG4 it does not have the header front loaded like the current h.264 derived files.so, it needs to load the entire file before it starts since the header is at the end. but, the both started fine for me so my guess is that the problem lies elsewhere. what version of Firefox are you using and what OS?

Jeff
I have the same issue with both my Mac and PC.
The Mac OS is OSX 10.5.8 with Firefox 3.6.25
The PC is windows 7 with the latest version of Firefox. It automatically updates.
The way I discovered this problem was I had two people email me to tell me the movies weren't loading, so it's more than my computer. This has not been a problem in the past.

unless i can duplicate the issue i can't really troubleshoot it. and, if you're using FF 3.6.25 in MacOSX you might want to consider installing a newer version.

Understandable, Thanks for taking the time with me on this.
I guess I'll just consider it a glitch in the system and see how it plays out.
